Financial Assistance

The South Shore YMCA strives to serve the entire community. Financial Assistance is available to those who cannot afford fees. Assistance is awarded based on the need demonstrated by household income and/or extenuating circumstances and the funds available. Monies used to fund Financial Assistance are made possible through charitable donations to our Annual Support Campaign. Contact Chris Jacobs at 781-659-2559, or click HERE for an application.
